Meet Queenie. She is the hummingbird here at Life on the Patio that seems to be in charge of all the other hummingbirds that frequent our feeders. That’s why we call her Queenie. That, and the fact that she is bigger than the others. Her ‘best friend’ is ‘Lil Blue. He got his name because he is blue, a little green, grey, and beautiful. We find their relationship fascinating since hummingbirds tend to not want others at the feeders when they are there. But Blue flies in right as Queenie leaves and they head for the same tree after sipping at the feeder. It’s like they have an understanding.

in case you can’t see the main photo, here is the hummingbird known as Queenie. My daughter captured it with its wings spread open. Check out its beak. They have long beaks for sipping nectar.
